Hello. I've been a Marlin owner since I was 12 years old. Some 30+ yrs now, I wonder where all that time went? My first Marlin is a 30-30 that has "Glennfield Arms" or similar stamped on it.(not looking at it right now).

I just recently purchased a .308MX and now I'm a little curious about all this talk about "Remington", "Droop", and the seeming inability to find the factory load Hornady ammo. I'm not quite ready to pony up the money to get into reloading, yet. Figure that money could be spent on a rifle that I can find factory ammo for, like a 30-06.

When I was searching for the .308 I chose the MX because it is a visual match to my 30-30, and I thought that was pretty cool. I didn't read anywhere about it being made in whole or in part by Remington. Are all of the .308 MX\MXLR rifles Marlin\Remington composites?

I've managed to find 6 boxes of the Hornady ammo and bought another 6 of the Remington just to feel comfortable.

Any way, I'll be surfing the threads and posting mostly questions until I get up to speed.

Glad to be here, looks like this is a good group.

Welcome from Goldthwaite, TX! Thanks for joining our forum! Did you buy your 308MX new or used? Some pictures and the first couple of letters and numbers of the serial number might help the experts to give you more info. A quick check is to see if there is a JM stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. I hope you got a good one because that is a great caliber:biggrin: Be sure to save all your brass because it will come in handy later. John

Welcome. But realize that if you hang around here, you'll end up spending on more levers and accessories for them. And you don't reload to save money, you reload so you can shoot more...
